Lesson: Twisteezwire Wire Bird
Wire coat hangers act as a rigid support frame to attach Twisteezwire. Use hangers in combination with our wire to make these exotic wire birds. Materials: two wire coat hangers, about 20 twisteez wires depending on degree of detail. Optional: beads, feathers, buttons, etc.
Slightly fold one of the hangers to form the wings.
Bend the hook up and twist it forward to form a neck and head.
Place the wing hanger on the body hanger (or visa versa) and bind them together with Twisteez Wires – first the neck, then the spots where the wings and body hangers cross.
Now for the fun part! Anything goes. Use brightly colored Twisteezwire to illustrate feather patterns and other details.
Use buttons or beads for the eyes. Slip Twisteezwire through the holes and twist them to the hanger to hold them in place.
